Ten Clips giveaway…

Well, I am sorry to say but no one guessed correctly for the Zac Miner Ten Clips give away with the correct number of Allan Border poster appearances of 20.

Some were really tricky & hard to spot but here they all are… 0.12, 0.17, 0.19, 0.29, 0.35, 0.39, 0.41, 0.45, 0.46, 0.49, 0.50, 0.53, 0.57, 1.00, 1.07, 1.08, 1.11, 1.14, 1.26 & 1.30. A couple you can only see the back or the side of the poster but it’s there regardless.

However, we picked 4 people at random & they will all receive The Colony DVD in the mail. Darus Elbon, Cameron Lawrence, Daniel Huggins & Christopher Paterson will all receive a DVD in the mail soon. Thanks again for all that entered.

Zac Miner – Ten Clips

About a month ago we spent the evening in Canberra where Zac Miner lives riding Woden park. Zac rode really well and mixed it up and hit a bunch of wild lines throughout the park, I don’t think footage does it justice to how fast he was hitting some of these lines but it was amazing.

Filmed by Daniel Johnson and Cooper Brownlee.

Just for fun as a special little giveaway here… the first 3 correct entries who count how many clips have a sneaky little Allan Border poster in them will win a free copy of The Colony DVD. Entries close today at 4pm AEST. Email your entries to

Simon O’Brien in Japan

Simon O’Brien is in Japan & sent in a quick update on his trip so far… read on below.

I arrived in Japan on friday, a little bit colder here than back home, but it’s still great to be here. The following day was the G-Shock invite contest….I didnt win but was still happy with how I rode for the first comp back on the international circuit for sometime. It was great to catch up with great friends and some of the best riders in the business! 430 Clothing and G-Shock did an amazing job!

The last couple of days I have been chilling, checking the sights and checked out a 350 year old bonsai!

Thanks – Simon.

Tobias Wicke video

I have known Tobias Wicke for years now & have always admired his riding. He is such a good guy to hang out with as well. This video was very impressive in all counts. Just gotta love the front brakes. Tobias doesn’t ride for us as such but we have flowed him some parts from time to time. Posting this video just because it’s awesome.
